This is not a polka obviously; it is the slow air that The Boys Of The Lough play before The 9 Points Of Roguery on their s/t first album.
Caoineadh Eoghain Rua
My version is abc code as written dots by the boys of the lough.
It’s a brilliant album for sure! and a lovely air!
Re: written dots
So this is their very own attempt of a transcription? Very cool! I see, I shouldn’t try to force this kind of melody into fixed bar lines so much… :) Thanks for posting!
The Boys did not write bar lines in their tunebook, they used dotted bar lines, a feature we do not have in abc notation, but is a honest way of notation of the unsteady rythm of the slow air.
